MTV OMG will join the rest of the MTV Music Pack which currently includes MTV Music, MTV Base, MTV Hits, MTV Dance, MTV Rocks, MTV Classic, VH1 UK, MTV Music +1 and replaces FTA channel VIVA, as the brand looks to invest further in music TV on MTV and its sister brands.

The channel will be a great complement to the rest of our portfolio, bringing audiences all the latest pop culture moments, music and gossip from the world of entertainment.”
